It is so irritating that "Nancy Sings" always gets picked ... its like
Jandek's pop hit or some shit....
How about "Slinky Parade", "Star of Zenith" or "You Can Stop Now" It just
seems that some people don't delve far enough into the catalog. Don't be
afraid it isn't going to kill you...
I have held 3 monthly jandek listening parties where we listen to all of the
albums in a row including the two tribute albums, we have wine and some good
snacks and force ourselves to no sleep or bathroom breaks... it can get
maniacal but it is well worth it to immerse yourself in such an impressive
body of work.....I have yet to own "Khartoum Variations" or "Newcastle
Sunday" and I can't wait to do it with them also... I am also eager for
"Manhattan Tuesday" I was at that show at it was phenomanal.
On a side note.. My best friend and co-founder of my band Dr. Bluepen and
His Wandering What, BJ Brown, passed away on Saturday February 18th. He
suffered with 6 bouts of cancer over 7 years. Him and I drove down to
Manhattan to see Jandek at the Anthology Film Archive. He was an intense
fan of Jandek, and he told me since 2000 that his dream was to see Jandek
live.... I kept teasing him saying "ITS NEVER GONNA HAPPEN" he proved me
wrong... We also had the lucky opportunity to converse with "a
representative from Corwood" over the telephone. These were dreams realized
for BJ Brown.... He will be sorely missed, and I plan on painting more
Jandek covers because I know he would want me to continue.....
